While at work yesterday I checked out the sighting of Black Crested Night Herons along our stream. The three in the tree weren't easy to spot but the one sleeping in a small tree on the bank is in the picture below - just look for the white (center, far side of stream)- my phone doesn't zoom. I also included a picture from the internet. These birds are 22 - 26 inches in height and have a wingspan of 45 inches! They're nesting in the trees and I hope to see their babies when hatched.
